My Whirlpool gas oven will not ignite, but the stove top works.

I have a Whirlpool Model #SF368LEPS3 Whirlpool Free standing - gas range and the oven/broiler will not ignite. So far we have checked for loose connections/wires, and taken the plate off the bottom of the oven to look for a spark from the igniter. There is no spark from the igniter. My father is very handy in general, but has not worked with alot of gas ovens. I cannot afford a repairman OR a new stove, so I am hoping I can find a guide or some help in fixing it. My gut, and my online research, says that the igniter is bad and needs to be replaced, but could it be something else? What is the degree of difficulty in replacing it? If i NEED to call a repairman I will, but if there is any way I can get by without it, I would rather do that. I can supply any additional info you need, but this is WAY outside my scope of knowledge. I do not even know what search terms to use to find anything useful online. :(
